I was disappointed but not terribly surprised to learn that Fox has cancelled Almost Human. Unfortunately the show's talented stars were not enough to save a show that was in almost all other ways mediocre or worse. Oh well, at least the 24 reboot is just around the corner.

Hilariously I just got back from the UK and there were billboards advertising the new "hit" show "Almost Human" starting in May all over the place.





Money well spent. biggrin.gif

Hate to say it, but no big loss. I watched the whole first season and there was always the feeling of great potential that the show never really lived up to. I will happily go watch superior fare like Sleepy Hollow.

I really liked this show, unfortunately Fox did it's usual tricks to kill ratings then cancel it. I hope another network or online broadcaster picks it up.

Nobody mentions it, probably because the show wasn't very good, but another series this season was also mucked up by being shown out of order: Intelligence. Granted, episode order probably didn't matter much anyway, but it didn't help that, as with Almost Human, characterizations and relationships were all over the map week to week because the scripted development of those elements were completely trashed by the wildly randomized order.

Lol, oh fox you ****ing idiots... just because other networks randomly start cancelling shows doesn't mean you follow... of all the shows I would've thought made it one more season at least figured it would be this one... luckily you're Fox...

If this show gets released on bluray it should deserve the extra treatment

Hope netflix or FX picks it up. I guess I was one of the few that really enjoyed it.

And the real reason behind the cancellation is now revealed, with the announcement of entertainment head Kevin Reilly stepping down (or pushed?)...

Quote:
 And yet, industry insiders weren’t completely shocked Thursday when the news of Reilly’s exit broke. That’s because, just weeks after Reilly talked to us, reports started trickling in that Rice and Reilly weren’t seeing eye to eye on some decisions. Multiple sources tell Vulture that, during the late April/early May process of deciding what Fox’s new schedule would be, Reilly had, almost reluctantly, chosen to order 13 more episodes of the critically loved freshman comedy Enlisted. He also made the no-brainer call to bring back the J.J. Abrams–produced modest hit Almost Human for a second season. And yet, according to multiple accounts, Rice essentially vetoed Reilly’s decisions in both cases.
 
Rice’s thinking on Enlisted, according to people familiar with the situation, was that the show wasn’t likely to ever be a big hit, so why should the network sink more money into it, even if the show came from in-house production company 20th Century Fox TV? (The fact that Reilly had previously indicated zero interest in Enlisted made it hard for him to dispute Rice’s logic.)
 
As for Almost Human, while the show’s ratings might have warranted renewal, it was a very costly series produced by a competing showbiz behemoth (Time Warner–owned Warner Bros. TV). If WBTV wasn’t going to cut its price for the show, Rice, according to sources, saw no season to bring back a marginal hit, particularly since Reilly had already gone to bat for, and renewed, two low-rated comedies produced by outside companies (The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine). 

Would've been renewed...missed it by ''this much..'' But being produced by an outside studio cost it getting a second year.

I hate corporate synergy. :mad:

Interesting.... thanks for the info.
Well, perhaps it's not really dead yet... maybe just in a medically induced coma waiting for a reason to return smile.gif

Maybe it's just...recharging...

I doubt it's ever going to see the light of day again, but I'd watch it of it did.
